Taking Draper James to France on July 4th

Retro Inspired Independence Day Shoot

It’s truly incredible how much our young country has been through after 241 years in existence. Much has impacted our current trajectory, and while most of it is our own doing, we would not be who we are without the support and loyalty of our allies. Through all of our growing pains the people and country of France have been there for us, from acknowledging our sovereignty and becoming a military ally in our fight for British independence, to gifting us our beautiful Lady Liberty over 100 years later. We would not be who were are if it were not for France.  I wanted to do a little something different than most blogger’s annual July 4th inspired outfit post, so I hope you enjoy this little French-inspired look on America’s birthday!

Working Girl

In this day and age no woman carries just one title. The 2017 woman is a working girl 24/7. She has a 9-5, she’s a mom, she’s a student, she owns her own business, she supports others and is involved in her community. She travels to places she’s never been, moves her family across the country, the state, or the world. She has a wide range of experience, a diverse pool of friends and an ever-growing knowledge base because more opportunities than ever are available to her.

Rocksbox #2 Review + 30 FREE Days of Rocksbox for You Too!

Yes, I know I just did a Rocksbox post but I wanted to share my second box because I’m even more pleased with this set than I was with the first. Remember I told you before how you can change your profile preferences and a Rocksbox stylist will send you pieces according to the updates? Well, I didn’t realize just how fast they would notice my change in preferences — Before the old box had even reached Rocksbox returns my stylist Kathy had chosen new pieces, written me a personal note about why she chose each piece, and sent the new box on its way. This all happened within 48 hours of sending the first box back!

Rocksbox Review

For my second box I asked for statement earrings, delicate/long necklaces and bangle/layering bracelets. As you can see that’s exactly what I got.

Rocksbox Review

I really like that these three pieces go perfectly together. It’s an entire look in one box.

Rocksbox Review

I’m loving Rocksbox so much I want to remind you they gave me a code for my readers to try their subscription service for FREE too! Just use code ‘mydiylifexoxo’ at Rocksbox.com and get your first 30 days free. As you can see this is my second box in April, so you could easily get 3 boxes in 30 days if you wished (and have the ability to make quick decisions!). And, since return shipping is also free, it’s 100% risk free if you end up hating the service.

What baubles would you want to see in a personalized Rocksbox for yourself?

Sparkly Studio Tour – Sneak Peek at My Home Work Space

Hello Dears and Happy New Year! It’s officially 2015! I hope your celebrations were safe and memorable 🙂
Today I’m giving a little studio sneak peek / tour in celebration of the new sequin hangers available in the Glitter & Bow Goody Bar on Etsy! I’ve carried the standard sequin hanger for quite some time but have received so many custom orders and requests for different types that I went ahead and created ready-to-purchase listings for two types of ‘clip’ hangers: The two-clip hanger and the bar-lever hanger. I also have two SPECIAL EDITION Outfit Planner hangers for the serious fashionista!
There are so many fun ways you can use these hangers… Hanging art, displaying favourite gowns, as gifts, organizing scarves, and hand bags and much more!
